However, Jackett has already told Mason about his big plans between now and the end of the season, and although Wolves were unable to beat Bolton Wanderers in midweek, the former Cardiff City striker is looking forward to trying to help the Midlands club climb the standings.
“When I came here, the head coach said he wants to really kick on at the end of this season,” Mason said added.
“This result sets us back a bit but we’ve got to go to Reading on Saturday and get three points.
Wolves’ season so far has been plagued by injury and departures of key players.
The loss of Bakary Sako in the summer was a huge blow, while Benik Afobe’s switch to Bournemouth in January put a further dent in Wolves’ promotion chances.
With Nouha Dicko and Jordan Graham also on the treatment table, Wolves have struggled to live up to expectations - and they are currently nine points behind the play off spots.
It seems that Jackett has not given up hope for the season yet though, and he will be wanting his Wolves side to get back to winning ways by beating Reading at the weekend.
